2017 Week 3 - Autumn Leaves and a non-ornament ornament

Evening all
I'm relaxing tonight after spending a wonderful weekend with 15 other ladies at the Winter retreat

I decided to pull out Autumn Leaves for this week knowing that I had extra time to stitch at retreat

Start:



Progress:



As well as trying to blog more often (weekly is plan), I am attempting TUSAL this year and also an ornament a month. Well it definitely helps to look at the stitch count before you pull a pattern for an ornament.
The one I pulled for January is definitely a little big for an ornament. This changes my plans for my next 11 ornaments, but it's not a big deal... that's why we collect patterns right? :)
Here is where I am with Lizzie Kate's Merry Ho Ho

Autumn Leaves is stunning, Bonnie. I love Lizzie Kate patterns but haven't seen that one before. It looks as if it would make the perfect ornament doesn't it?
Glad to hear you enjoyed the retreat.

Nice progress on Autumn Leaves. Retreats are good for pushing us along, aren't they?

Very cute LK design.
